Little Help

Might have a job offer in the San Antonio area still working out the kinks and etc. but my question is how is the cost of living in area? Where are some places to look at housing and what areas should I avoid? What are somethings that I can sell to the women on as well since she is still debating the move as well.

You'll Love it!!!

Moved to Houston 20 years ago and never regreted it. Outstanding low Cost of Living, no state income tax (but shop carefully for a place to live as that can make 2 to 3% difference in Property Taxes), and truely outstanding opportunties for recreaction. Also have a raft of "Winter Texans" from up north.

Texas - Is the only state in the Union that was a separate country and is in the Union by Treaty. Even had a Embassy in Londoin (it's now a TexMex resturant!).

The areas to live are going to be based on your work's location. I think the NW side of town has the most growth and a pretty good housing market. For the most part, stay outside of the 1604 loop.
